My name is Dr David Turner, I am originally from Scotland and I am a fully qualified UK Clinical Psychologist having obtained my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from the University of Edinburgh.  I am also a registered Psychologist NIP in the Netherlands.

I have been delivering therapy for over 8 years across a range of settings including private practice here in Amsterdam and in the National Health Service in the UK.  I’ve worked with people from a wide variety of social and cultural backgrounds and across all age groups, which helps my empathic understanding of my clients and ability to provide a safe space in which to build a strong therapeutic alliance.  I also understand the expat experience having lived in the UK, Netherlands and Hong Kong. 

I work primarily from a cognitive-behavioural approach; CBT has the strongest evidence base of all psychological therapies therefore for many problems it is a valid approach.  However, what is most important is that the therapy is tailored to the individual therefore a range of techniques and perspectives may be intergrated in my work. I also publish research which contributes to the evidence-base for psychology in international journals.
